Colwill, 20, is yet to make his debut for Chelsea but has impressed on loan at Brighton this season, who have enjoyed a fantastic 2022-23 campaign and will play in Europe next term. The England U21 international centre-back has made 21 appearances for the Seagulls and the south coast club are looking to sign him in a permanent deal, although they face competition from Liverpool, City and Spurs. Colwill, though, has admitted he is absolutely loving life at Brighton and is keen to repay the faith they have put in him. ‘Brighton have done a lot for me,’ Colwill told The Athletic. ‘They put their trust in me when others didn’t and I’m a person that loves to repay that. We’ll see. ‘I don’t know what is going to happen (at Chelsea). I’m still here until the end of the season. ‘I just focus on that, then I’ve got the Euros (Under-21 European Championship with England) in the summer. After that, we’ll see what happens and go from there.’ 🚨 Halfway through an exclusive interview with The Athletic, Levi Colwill had to be reminded that he is, in fact, a Chelsea player. “I forgot for a minute,” Colwill chuckled.#CFC (@AndyNaylorBHAFC & @TheAthleticFC) pic.twitter.com/XTw8aGWVRP— Chelsea Dodgers (@TheBlueDodger) May 25, 2023 Quizzed more generally about his time at Brighton and the club’s playing style, Colwill added: ‘It’s obviously tough work. I was blowing out of my arse! ‘But apart from that I do enjoy it. It’s aggressive. It’s showing you want to win the ball back as fast as possible. When you do you hear the fans roar. It’s an amazing feeling and you want to do it again. It’s aggressive and I love it. ‘The changing room is the biggest part. These players are amazing. They are there for you, to put an arm around you, to give you advice, to tell you off. It’s just a perfect balance and I appreciate it so much.

I might not have liked it at the start of the season, or last year (when he was on loan at Huddersfield in the Championship). ‘I’d be thinking, ‘Why are these players always on to me?’, but I came to the realisation that I want them to be onto me, because it shows they care. I appreciate that so much. I’d never take that away from anyone. When they care, every day, it’s only going to improve you.
